Went to Culina last night for the Sunday family meal. It's my first time there for dinner, as I've only been there for brunch before. You get 3 courses for $26 per person, not including tax, tip, or drinks.

(The menu recollection isn't exact as I didn't take notes when the server was rattling off the dishes to us.)

Started off with a tomato and romaine salad with onions, fried chickpeas and a balsamic vinaigrette. Nice and tangy, would have been even better if the tomatoes had been sweeter.

The main was bison short ribs braised in a tomato based sauce... I think he mentioned thyme as well, served on a bed of barley. Majority of the pieces were tender and meaty, although one section of ribs was a little too dry. Way too much meat for one sitting; lots of leftovers. We all liked the taste of the ribs, although I think the dish might have been better with maybe brown rice as opposed to barley.

Dessert was a crepe filled with a light chocolate mousse and a vanilla bean meringue. Not bad but I would have liked a stronger chocolate taste and more meringue.

All in all, it was a tasty meal. Not recommended for picky eaters, as the whole restaurant gets the same food and you don't have a choice other than picking things out of your food.
